Ooohhh, that's not fair!
All of the drivers with safe, reliable card detection will detect all of the
cards of that type in the machine.
All PCI cards can be detected without dangerous ISA probes, and
thus the drivers detect all of the cards.
There is one (the LANCE/PCnetISA/PCnetPCI) driver with unsafe probes that will
do the same.
The change to make the other drivers detect multiple cards is trivial --
just change one number in the eth1, eth2, and eth3 entries in
Sometimes I wonder if I should have done that by default...
